The OSCE’s uncertain future
The International Institute for Strategic Studies has published a Strategic Comment on the OSCE’s uncertain future.
The credibility of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) as a regional security provider is increasingly in doubt.
With a mandate covering hard security issues and conflict, as well as economic and human security, it is the only organisation in Europe to embody the concept of comprehensive security.
The OSCE's broad mandate should allow it to play an important role in tackling the challenges of a globalised world facing transnational threats and economic problems.
But NATO's new Strategic Concept published in November 2010 makes no mention of the OSCE even though it places significant emphasis on partnerships.
Meanwhile, other institutions such as the European Union seem better placed to attend to economic problems and to deal with issues such as energy security and the environment.
